I have a strange problem that sometimes TV episodes are played normally and sometimes the player overlay is displayed but playback is stopped at 0:00. I can seek and then it would say ‘buffering’ but nothing happens. Finally I can press stop again and maybe try another file. Log of this recently happening (Supernatural, last log entries)
Sometimes, OSMC even freezes during this and I can only connect via SSH and send a reboot command (sudo reboot). However, there are some strange messages in the log and instead of rebooting, the system halts at ‘Reached target Shutdown’. The only option left then is to cut power and reconnect again.
I’ve had exactly the same problem the last couple of weeks (on two different Vero 4K’s). Every 3+ video’s I play have this problem (timer appears but stuck at 00:00. If I press STOP and wait a while I can get back to the menu. Select Reboot from menu. Similar pqd errors. Works fine after the reboot. I’ve not had time to capture logs or anything yet, I was too busy ruling out my NFS server and Network as I thought it might be related to them. Good to see I might not be the only one with this I’m running Kodi and TVHeadend.
No USB drive. I have about the same configuration and (I guess even fewer, since I completely reinstalled) services running, as on my previous Vero (1st gen) device. Besides OSMC it’s running:
All media is stored on a NAS, which is accessed via NFS and the NFS share is mounted manually at boot (via /etc/fstab). The device is connected via LAN to a router and the NAS is behind a Wireless Bridge.
It might have started with the March update but I’m not completely sure.
So, means there are sources added to the mediacenter named “Serien” and “Filme” but they are loctaed in the root file system … at least I do not see a mointpoint to /home/osmc/Serien and /home/osmc/Filme at a glance?
I think I’ve managed to resolve my issue (which looked/sounded identical). I believe it was a Spotify plugin I had installed. @PreacherAT I notice in the logs you are also using the same Spotify plugin. You may want to try temporarily disabling it and seeing if it helps?
